Rating: 2.5/4 -- An OK film adaptation whose primary point of interest is its collection of superlative seniors in the leading roles. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- A film driven by atmosphere and a quiet sense of foreboding dread, Ghost Story is the hauntingly provocative adaptation of Peter Straub's novel that may be a tonal mess, but still has this weirdly hypnotic power to it after all these years. Full Review

...On the credit side is the opportunity to see [Astaire, Douglas, Fairbanks and Houseman] playing four old New England codgers...

Rating: 4/5 -- The classic Hollywood stars lend distinction to this rather tepid spook show.

Product Description:

Four elderly men who gather once a week to thrill each other with tales of terror find one of their scariest stories coming to life, as a woman they mistakenly left for dead fifty years earlier returns to life to gain revenge. Featuring stellar talent, including Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and John Houseman as the main characters, this superior, chilling horror film takes its story from a novel by Peter Straub.

Plot Synopsis:

In New England, four old men entertain each other by telling ghost stories. But these men are tormented by their own horrendous real-life tale, involving a crime they committed against a young lady during their youth -- an act they've hidden for the past 50 years. But this secret comes back to haunt them, as the evil spirit of the woman avenges the crime committed against her.


Production Notes:

  • Fred Astaire's final film. He died in 1987.
  • Also Melvyn Douglas' final film.
